Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger, was a member in good standing with the racist American Eugenics Society. Sanger had board members who were known for their racist writing and Sanger published many of those in her publications. Sanger called for parents to have a QUOTE: LICENSE TO BREED controlled by people who believed in her eugenic philosophy. She wanted all would be parents to go before her eugenic boards to request a “PERMIT TO BREED“.
Margaret Sanger once said, “More children from the fit, less from the unfit — that is the chief aim of birth control.” Birth Control Review, May 1919, p. 12
In Margaret Sanger’s, “Birth Control and Racial Betterment,” Feb 1919. Birth Control Review , Library of Congress Microfilm 131:0099B .
Sanger states, “Before eugenists and others who are laboring for racial betterment can succeed, they must first clear the way for Birth Control. Like the advocates of Birth Control, the eugenists, for instance, are seeking to assist the race toward the elimination of the unfit. Both are seeking a single end but they lay emphasis upon different methods.
Eugenists emphasize the mating of healthy couples for the conscious purpose of producing healthy children, the sterilization of the unfit to prevent their populating the world with their kind and they may, perhaps, agree with us that contraception is a necessary measure among the masses of the workers, where wages do not keep pace with the growth of the family and its necessities in the way of food, clothing, housing, medical attention, education and the like.
We who advocate Birth Control, on the other hand, lay all our emphasis upon stopping not only the reproduction of the unfit but upon stopping all reproduction when there is not economic means of providing proper care for those who are born in health. …While I personally believe in the sterilization of the feeble-minded, the insane and syphilitic, I have not been able to discover that these measures are more than superficial deterrents when applied to the constantly growing stream of the unfit… Eugenics without Birth Control seems to us a house builded upon the sands. It is at the mercy of the rising stream of the unfit…“
Sanger also called for those who were poor and what she considered to be “morons and immoral‘ , to be shipped to colonies where they would live in “Farms and Open Spaces” dedicated to brainwashing these so-called “inferior types” into having what Sanger called, “Better moral conduct”.
“ I consider that the world and almost our civilization for the next twenty-five years, is going to depend upon a simple, cheap, safe contraceptive to be used in poverty stricken slums, jungles, and among the most ignorant people. Even this will not be sufficient, because I believe that now, immediately, there should be national sterilization for certain dysgenic types of our population who are being encouraged to breed and would die out were the government not feeding them.”
Planned Parenthood Founder, Margaret Sanger, 1950
Under a Eugenics System, blacks and others deemed to be “Feebleminded or unfit” were sterilized by the state and Planned Parenthood was used by State Sterilization Boards to perform these surgeries. But when the idea of state sponsored Sterilization began to be challenged in court, Planned Parenthood had to resort to other methods- that being ABORTION. But…how would they do this since many within the black community saw birth control and abortion as genocide? They would use what Sanger had been siccessful with for years – they would use BLACKS themselves to introduce and promote abortion.
In 1929, 10 years before Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger Sanger created the Negro Project, the American Birth Control League (ABCL) laid the groundwork for a clinic in Harlem, a largely black section of New York City. It was the dawn of the Great Depression, and for blacks that meant double the misery. Blacks faced harsher conditions of desperation and privation because of widespread racial prejudice and discrimination. From the ABCL’s perspective, Harlem was the ideal place for this “experimental clinic,” which officially opened on November 21, 1930. Many blacks looked to escape their adverse circumstances and therefore did not recognize the eugenic undercurrent of the clinic. The clinic relied on the generosity of private foundations to remain in business.18 In addition to being thought of as “inferior” and disproportionately represented in the underclass, according to the clinic’s own files used to justify its “work,” blacks in Harlem:
• were segregated in an over-populated area (224,760 of 330,000 of greater New York’s black population lived in Harlem during the late 1920s and 1930s);
• comprised 12 percent of New York City’s population, but accounted for 18.4 percent of New York City’s unemployment;
• had an infant mortality rate of 101 per 1000 births, compared to 56 among whites;
• had a death rate from tuberculosis—237 per 100,000—that was highest in central Harlem, out of all of New York City.19
Although the clinic served whites as well as blacks, it “was established for the benefit of the colored people.” Sanger wrote this in a letter to Dr. W. E. Burghardt DuBois,20 one of the day’s most influential blacks. A sociologist and author, he helped found the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in 1909 to improve the living conditions of black Americans. ( SOURCE: The Negro project, Margaret Sanger’s Eugenic Plan for Black Americans, by Tanya L. Green)
In 1932- Sanger entitled the June 1932 Birth Control Review “ The Negro Number” and she recruited black leaders to contribute articles in support of eugenic the cause. NAACP founder, WEB Du Bois, wrote, (and Sanger often quoted), “ The mass of ignorance Negroes still bred carelessly and disastrously, so that the increase among Negroes, even more than the increase among whites, is from that portion of the population least intelligent and fir, and least able to rear children properly.” ( Source Medical Apartheid, by Harriet Washington, p. 197, quoting W.E.B. DuBois, Birth Control Review (June 1932), p.166)
In 1939 Margaret Sanger wrote this to Clarence Gamble, “ It seems to me from my experience . . . in North Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, and Texas, that while the colored Negroes have great respect for white doctors, they can get closer to their own members and more or less lay their cards on the table. . . . They do not do this with the white people, and if we can train the Negro doctor at the clinic, he can go among them with enthusiasm and with knowledge, which, I believe, will have far-reaching results. . . . His work, in my opinion, should be entirely with the Negro profession and the nurses, hospital, social workers, as well as the County’s white doctors. His success will depend upon his personality and his training by us. The minister’s work is also important, and also he should be trained, perhaps by the Federation, as to our ideals and the goal that we hope to reach. We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members (Sanger, 1939, December 19). This statement, letter to Clarence J. Gamble, M.D., Planned Parenthood Website. )
In 1939, the ABCL and Sanger’s Clinical Research Bureau merged to form the Birth Control Federation of America (BFCA). Dr. Clarence J. Gamble, previously a director of the ABCL, was elected the BCFA regional director in the South. Almost immediately, he drew up a memorandum for his plans for the “Negro Project.” Gamble’s plan included placing black leaders in positions where it would appear that they were in charge (in order to counter the perception by black leaders who might regard birth control as an extermination plot). Sanger agreed: “We do not want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten that idea out if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” ( SOURCE: Eugenics part of Sanger legacy by Mary Senander , Star Tribune (Minneapolis, MN), October 14, 1993 )
In 1940, Sanger’s Birth Control Federation of America, which became Planned Parenthood Federation of American in 1942, established a Division of Negro Service to oversee the Negro Project and to implement Sanger’s educational outreach to African Americans nationally. Sponsored by Sanger’s fundraising efforts and directed by Florence Rose, the division provided black organizations across the country with Planned Parenthood literature, set up local educational exhibits, facilitated local and national public relations, and employed an African-American doctor, Mae McCarroll, to lobby medical groups and teach contraceptive techniques to other black doctors.

In 1944, The division of Negro Services was only partially successful in stimulating Negro interest during the period 1940-43…The Planned Parenthood Federation highers a “ Negro Consultant” , and a bi-racial planning committee was formed in order to obtain the advice and help of Negroes for the National Program. Negro members added to National Board. Representation on National, Field , Public Information , and Medical Committees. ( SOURCE: Florence Rose Collection: Box 24 Folder 9, “Highlights of 1944-45 Program” on work with Negroes: printed material, 1945, 1944, Sophie Smith Collection, Smith College)
By 1945, The Planned Parenthood Federation adds additional Negro Professional workers on staff. Also, three Negroes on DC Board, and they noted that the Connecticut, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania were in the process of adding Negro members. In addition, literature kits for Negro Health Week were distributed to several hospitals, individual Negro colleges, Negro Doctors and teachers, Negro organizations, Negro newspapers and editors, and Negro ministers. The Washington DC League employed a Negro Consultant to work with the Executive in interpreting “the program” to local Negro groups. In Kansas City, MO. And Chester, PA, and Columbus, Ohio a bi-racial committee for interpreting Planned Parenthood was developed. In Camden, NJ PP initiated an intense educational campaign to interpret planned parenthood to Negroes and ot secure cooperation of leaders. The Members of the NJ Board voted to add Negroes to its board. Negroes were also appointed to the board in New York City.
( SOURCE: Florence Rose Collection: Box 24 Folder 9, “Highlights of 1944-45 Program” on work with Negroes: printed material, 1945, 1944, Sophie Smith Collection, Smith College)
Also in 1945, top ranking Pathologist, Dr. Julian Lewis wrote an article in The Negro Digest entitled: Can the Negro Afford Birth Control. Lewis makes the argument that Blacks need to increase their birth rate in order to survive as a people. He calls the doctrine to further the practice of birth control among blacks, “misguided.” (P.19) He said that one of the most alarming threats to the birth rate of Negroes comes from another direction, “ a new movement that has been initiated to promote the practice of birth control among Negroes.” He, unlike other Black leaders of his day, gives Planned Parenthood the benefit of the doubt where their motives regarding birth control are concerned. “ The aims of this birth control group, Planned Parenthood, are as a whole, lofty.”
Among Planned Parenthood’s goals for 1946: Continue to interpret Planned Parenthood to the Negro groups as a positive health and welfare resource.

• National Negro Nurses Association
• National Negro Insurance Assoc
• Parent-teachers Assoc.
• National Medical Association

By the 1960’s, blacks were seeing abortion and birth control as genocide: Planned Parenthood recruited NAACP members to push Sanger’s Negro Project”
2004 – Article NAACP endorses abortion, Sanger’s grandson speaks (Read here)
In 1966, Planned Parenthood president, Dr. Alan F. Guttmacher praised the advice of Cecil Newman, the publisher of the Minnesota Spokesman and former board member of Planned Parenthood of Minneapolis, concerning Guttmacher’s concern that blacks viewed Planned Parenthood and birth control as genocide. In a letter dated February 18,1966, from a mutual friend, Daryl Feldmeir managing editor of the Minneapolis Tribune, Newman offered this suggestion, which Guttmacher wholeheartedly approved, “If I were Dr. Guttmacher, I would find some of the top Negro clergymen with large congregations to serve on my board. They really command respect.” On March 7th of the same year, Guttmacher thanks Newman, “Our mutual friend, Daryle M. Feldmeir, wrote me that he had discussed with you my concern about the racist reaction which seems to be springing up regarding Planned Parenthood. Actually the groups that seem the most vocal do not seem to be connected with the Black Muslim movement, to wit, the group of students at Berkley, calling themselves EROS and the NAACP in Philadelphia under the leadership of Cecil Moore.” Guttmacher goes on to acknowledge Newman’s suggestion of placing clergymen on the board and asks him to submit three names. ( SOURCE: March 7, 1966 Letter from Alan F. Guttmacher to Mr. Cecil Newman and February 18,1966 letter from Daryle M. Feldmeir to Alan F. Guttmacher located in the Planned Parenthood Federation Papers, Black Attitudes from 1962, copied from the Sophie Smith Collection, Sophie Smith College , Box 107/Folder 11)
In a letter dated March 7, 1966, Planned Parenthood President, Alan F. Guttmacher wrote to Mr. William Searle, VP of Marketing of the CD Searle Company telling him that he had been picketed by a group of very attractive young men, and noted that this was “just one of several manifestations of increasing racist apprehension in regard to birth control by minority groups, Mexicans, and Puerto Ricans.” Guttmacher had a solution, he continued, “I am seriously considering adding to my staff a minority relations man or women from one of the minority groups, and since the largest is the Negro, probably someone of the Negro race. It would be his task to work not only with the conventional groups like the NAACP, CORE, etc. but actively to confront three militant groups and see whether or not we couldn’t persuade them of the error of their ways.” Guttmacher then tells Searle that the “only thing holding me back is the lack of money.” Guttmacher than asks is Searle would be interested in supporting “such a unit”.

Searle located in the Planned Parenthood Federation Papers, Black Attitudes from 1962, copied from the Sophie Smith Collection, Sophie Smith College , Box 107/Folder 11)
In February of 1966, Sidney A. Hessel of the Planned Parenthood League of New Haven [CT.] wrote to Alan F. Guttmacher this letter (experts):
“ Since the luncheon phase of the last board meeting I have been very much concerned. I do not know if your report was the bombshell to the others that it was to me, but the fact that the Urban League, NAACP, etc. were actively and vocally naming PP*WP [Planned Parenthood-World Population] a racist organization shocked me. I remember as long ago as 1935 hearing the then Catholic inspired reaction from the Negro community, “The whites want to keep our numbers down so they can rule us.” However, to hear this view point promulgated in 1966 by the leaders of the Negro group was a shock. More upsetting was the apparent acquiescent nod of the PP*WP spokesperson to the accusation. We can and should admit that our efforts have been geared toward the low socio-economic segment of the population-and probably the Negro population more than others…As to Negro board membership- Should a person be elected to the board because his skin is brown or yellow? Isn’t this also racism? Do the leaders of the Negro community have the time to give to Planned Parenthood over and above their other commitments? Let’s put the burden of cure on them and ask the leadership of the NAACP, CORE, the Urban League, etc. to submit names of qualified people to our nominating committee on the same basis as our affiliates…If we tell our story and stick to our viewpoint often enough we will be believed.” ( SOURCE: March 8,1966 Letter from Alan F. Guttmacher to Mrs. Sidney A. Hessel and February 24,1966 letter from Bea Hessell to Alan F. Guttmacher located in the Planned Parenthood Federation Papers, Black Attitudes from 1962, copied from the Sophie Smith Collection, Sophie Smith College , Box 107/Folder 11:)
So…by 1968, Planned Parenthood took this advice and appointed a BLACK MAN to sit as the Chairman of the organization:
Planned Parenthood then used this BLACK MAN to introduce abortion into the organization:
In 1968, Planned Parenthood World Population approved unanimously a policy recognizing abortion and sterilization as proper medical procedures. It called for the legalization of both. They elect the first Negro as Chairman, Dr. Jerome H. Holland. Holland pledged his support to the organization and said that those who called birth control a form of “genocide” , “ Are not aware of the real meaning of Family Planning and its uses.” His comments came after the Pittsburgh NAACP criticized family planners in 1967 as bent on trying to keep the Negro birth rate as low as possible.
In 1968-NCAAP Health Policies and Resolutions Report 1992-2003
Quote: NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) made these statements in their Health and Policies resolutions Report, “Whereas, the NAACP has supported equal access to family planning materials and information since 1968 and whereas today women of color see abortion at rates higher than their percentage in the population, and overwhelmingly describe themselves as pro-choice in public opinion surveys, and whereas, on April 25,2004 thousands of pro-choice supporters will gather in Washington, DC for the “March” to demonstrate their support for the right to choice, and whereas, a woman denied the right to control her own body is denied equal protection of the law…therefore be it resolved that the NCAAP adds its endorsement and support for the “March” and urges all who believe in equal rights to attend.”
Some in the NAACP could see thru the Planned Parenthood racist agenda:
On December 4, 1967, Charles Greenlee chairman of the health committee of the Pittsburgh NAACP and Pittsburgh NAACP President, Byrd Brown, a black attorney, charged at a news conference that Planned Parenthood was keeping the Negro birth rate down. They said the agency was soliciting Negro women to take the pill. Planned Parenthood denied the charges. ( SOURCE: The Titusville Herald: The Problem of Black Birth Control, 10/7/1968; P. 7)

In 1962, the National Urban League rescinded its support of contraception, and so did many local NAACP chapters (1)
Twenty-eight percent of the Blacks surveyed in the late 1960’s agreed that “ encouraging blacks to use birth control is comparable to trying to eliminate this group from society” (2) (Source(1) Medical Apartheid, by Harriet Washington, Page 198,)quoting Simon M. Caron, “Birth Control and the Black Community in the 1960’s: Genocide or Power Politics?” Journal of Social History 31, no. 3 (Spring 1998): 550 SOURCE (2) “ Birth Control: Losing clinics intended to eliminate the Black Population, or, Did they see the threat of Negroes?” US News and World Report 63 ( August 7,1969): 11, 24-25.)
At a meeting of the Council of Philadelphia Anti-Poverty Action Committee in 1965, Cecil Moore, president of the local NAACP chapter, condemned a Planned Parenthood program for northern Philadelphia because 70 percent of the population was black. Labeling the plan “replete with everything to help the Negroes commit race suicide,” Moore convinced the committee to table the proposal. Around the same time, Donald A. Bogue, a Chicago activist, reported that the birthrate of blacks in Chicago had fallen from 39.4 per thousand births in 1960 to 29.1 per thousand births in 1965. Although Bogue deemed this decline a breakthrough in family planning, some blacks considered it evidence that contraception was a front to eliminate the black population.(9)… By the late 1960s, a survey found that 28 percent of the blacks questioned agreed that “Encouraging blacks to use birth control is comparable to trying to eliminate this group from society.” In Cleveland, Ohio, militant blacks burned down a contraceptive clinic after labeling its activities “black genocide.”(16)… Jesse Jackson did not actively oppose birth control, yet he did question the “timing” of the population control hysteria in the 1960s: “That this issue should surface simultaneously with the emergence of blacks and other nonwhites as a meaningful force in the nation and the world appears more than coincidental.”… Langston Hughes, American poet and novelist, wondered in 1965 through his renowned character Simple why all of sudden the government had millions of dollars for contraceptives for people of color in India, China, Africa, and Harlem.(25) (SOURCE: Journal of Social History, Birth control and the black community in the 1960s: genocide or power politics?, by Simone M.

In September 1965 the NAACP opposed a $91,000 federal grant for the dissemination of birth control information in North Philadelphia. The NAACP charged Planned Parenthood, which had applied for the grant, with attempting to “help Negroes commit racial suicide.” Although many blacks believed the pill was a benevolent technological advance, black nationalists tended to regard it as a symbol of genocide. A Planned Parenthood official explained to Ebony magazine: “Many Negro women have told our workers, There are two kinds of pills – one for white women and one for us…and the one for us causes sterilization.’” This kind of paranoia frustrated and angered birth control activists. (SOURCE: Philadelphia Inquirer September 29,1965, as quoted in The Pill: A Prescription for Equality, The Sexual Revolution: An Unfettered History Part 3 Make Love, Not War: by David Allyn, Little Brown and Company, 2000, P. 40 )
In 1967 Dr. Charles Greenlee, Pittsburgh branch of the NAACPcharges that Planned Parenthood was promoting “genocide” by aiming its work at reducing the black population. “ Planned Parenthood has other functions which aren’t used in the poverty neighborhoods at all- infertility clinics, spaced parenthood programs. The only one that they bring in the black neighborhoods in birth control.” ( SOURCE: The Moring Herald, Uniotown, PA: Civil Rights Group critical of Clinics: 12/29/1967)
In 1968- William “Bouie” Haden and other Negro militants accused Planned Parenthood of propagating “black genocide.” “The idea,” says Dr. Charles E. Greenlee, a Negro physician and a member of Haden’s group, “is to make less niggers so they won’t have to build houses for them.” Greenlee is chairman of the Health Committee is the Pittsburgh branch of the NAACP On December 4th of Last Year, He and Pittsburgh NAACP President, Byrd Brown , a Negro attorney, charged at a news conference that Planned Parenthood was keeping the Negro birth rate down. Greenlee and Brown also charged that the clinics were a not sanitary and lacked privacy. They said the agency was soliciting Negro women to take the Pill. The said the agency was soliciting Negro women to take The Pill. Planned Parenthood denied the charges. “If we keep producing, they’re either going to have to kill us or grant us full citizenship. The Negro’s birth rate is the only weapon he has. When he reaches 21 he can vote.” Greenlee also expounds his views on birth control in “The Thrust.” the weekly newspaper published by Haden’s United Movement for Progress and one of the projects made possible by a $12.000 grant to the 3.700-member group from the Pittsburgh Catholic Diocese. “Planned Parenthood should treat the black people the same as whites.” Haden says. “You know as well as I do that white people would not let birth control clinics be set up in their neighborhoods. But there are clinics located in the white Swissvale and Sewickley areas of the city.” ( SOURCE: The Problem of Black Birth Control THE TITUSVILLE HERALD, TITUSVILLE, PENNA, PAGE SEVEN: OCTOBER 7,1968)
IN 1970- Julian Bond, had become the director of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee, which he helped found. At the time of the speech, he was a member of the Board of Trustees of the Southern Conference Education Fund, of the Advisory Board of the proposed Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Library, and of the Executive Committee of the Atlanta NAACP. Bond suggested that the intense interest in the ‘population bomb” could lead to genocide of black Americans and other poor people. Bond in a commencement speech at Syracuse University, begins, ”If Mother Nature don’t get you, then Father Time will.” Now Dr. Ehrlich hastens to assure us that in spite of the fact that some of the white people who are talking up population control do mean population control of blacks, or the poor, or the Indians, like most racist plots this one is incompetent. Unfortunately, the good Doctor’s assurance does little to comfort me; rather it heightens my fear.My experience and knowledge teach me that the most racist plots have been dreadfully efficient, even when incompetent. The facts are overwhelmingly clear. The United Sates is a racist, imperialist nation. Those are the facts which will not be changed by the efforts of all here…Without the proper perspective, for instance, the Population Bomb becomes a theoretical hammer in the hands of angry, frightened, and powerful racists, to hold over the heads of Black people , as the ultimate justification for genocide. But because you might accuse me of alarmism, let me take a moment to examine the question. The Black people have legitimate cause for alarm…If Black people were threatened with genocide in the United States because of the problems of population, what should the federal government be expected to do?…The Nixon administration [ who issued the Commission on Population Control and the American Future, under Rockefeller] has already made one thing perfectly clear: Black votes are dispensable to this administration. Might not that also mean black people are equally dispensable?…I am inclined to raise the question as pointedly as possible. Do we, as black people, have legitimate cause for alarm? Has genocide ever been tried before? Yes it has. Has the United States government demonstrated its commitment to the defense of the interests of Black people? It has not. Do we have legitimate cause for alarm? I believe we do.” ( SOURCE: Transcript, Commencement address delivered at Syracuse University by Julian Bond on June 6,1970)
Given the racist history of Planned Parenthood’s founder and her connections to the Klan and the Eugenics Society, do we think for a moment that nominating a black prez was a noble move by the organization?
Planned Parenthood’s top award is called the Margaret Sanger Award, despite the fact that Sanger was an admitted Klan speaker. This is what Sanger wrote in her autobiography, “I accepted an invitation to talk to the women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan…I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses…I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak…In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered.” (Margaret Sanger: An Autobiography, P.366 Read it here http://library.lifedynamics.com//Autobiography/Chapter%2029.pdf)

Margaret Sanger concerned that the Well-to-do is using Birth Control while the “feeble minded” are not. She urges that birth control gets legalized so that these “unskilled” , “sub-normal” and “feeble minded” will not out-number the “intellectuals” (The Pittsburgh Press – Dec 30, 1928) Here
In 1962, Vice President of the American Eugenics Society at the time, Dr. Alan Guttmacher wants abortion laws patterned after Sweden and other nations. One reason they list to allow abortions is :EUGENIC ! Also- Guttmacher at this point says he does NOT BELIEVE that abortion should be left up to the patient or their doctor, rather it should be up to “Special Board” to approve the abortion.
